Yeah right. They are looking for only one answer, and if you want to stay married long you had better answer correctly.
Wall Street only wants aggressive growth. All growth is good, more growth is better. So what if it's not sustainable long-term?
Companies are pressured to cut costs to the bone in order to post double-digit profit growth every year. Capital expenditures are discouraged, since they take away from EPS. Enormous executive compensation is perfectly OK, as are share buybacks, but don't dare invest that money in R&D.
Once the company becomes unsustainable and that aggressive growth catches up to it, losses mount. Wall Street insiders saw this coming already and shorted the shares. The stock price takes a big dive, resulting in mass layoffs and resignations of anyone with talent. The now destroyed company is either taken private or massively restructured, often nearing bankruptcy.
That's how virtually all development was done circa 2004. Maximum complexity was encouraged "so we don't ever have to change anything".
Back in the 80s it was decided by the U.S. courts that the constitution does not matter when it comes to the War on Drugs. Any law enforcement action that would otherwise be unconstitutional is O.K. in the name of the War on Drugs. Sure, this isn't precisely what the rulings stated, but it's what was strongly implied. For example, the 4th amendment does not apply if you are pulled over in a motor vehicle.
Your remind me of those cowards spitting on soldiers returning from Vietnam. I bet you'd never have the balls to say any of this to an actual soldier.
Actually I got quite a rise out of you, douchbag. Anyone can be anything they want on the internet, hence you are not from New York. Well, an upstate suburb perhaps.
It is YOU who grew up in a lilly white suburb. All you know about minorities was spoonfed to you by liberal publications. You likely rebelled against your conservative parents and embraced all things liberal. I on the other hand grew up in numerous different places, and know that reality is often not politically correct.
Be honest, have you ever actually hired someone that you found via your ATS? Nobody has.
It's called being a realist, you moron. Reality isn't always pretty, or politically correct.
Too bad the European pussies won't take care of any of the atrocities occurring right in their back yards, making America be the World Police by default. Europe had better be concerned about the spread of the plague of Islamism, since it's coming right into their countries.
The flight attendant was absolutely right. Do tall and wide people pay extra to buy clothes at the Big and Tall shop? Yep. Do fat people pay extra for more food? Yep. Cough up the $$$ next time you fly. But I do agree, you never should have had to share your seat with a fat person. Put the armrest down and tell her to pick up her rolls.

This only works in large CYA-driven companies where upper management is clueless to anything technological. In startups, there is no time for the blame game. Hence, startups tend to eschew Microsoft/IBM.
